      Yeah, I've figured that out. That was a few years ago when I first got my Jetta. I have found some that show respect since then. But I still have to say, I think being a water cooled guy has something to do with it sometimes!

      I had never had a guy with an air cooled be a di(k me because my beetle wasn't up to their standards. That's why I kept to my air cooled crowd even after I sold mine. But, I am starting to get a little borde being the odd ball since they won't go to "the water pumping fests" all the time. And they do tease me about not being cool anymore since I don't have an old VW. But that's all in fun, I've known them for 10 years.

      It's cool to see girls getting into the vw scene. I wish there were some in new zealand. I have alot of respect for girls who know what they're doing with cars.

      I never really got a chance to finish it, but it was a blast to drive. I only wanted to have one project car on the go, so I sold the MkIV so I could have more time/financial resources to devote to building my MkII




      Anyways, back when I first joined here there weren't many other girls that were really into it (but definitely still some with sick cars) . Lots of girls whose boyfriends built their cars seem to pop up, but it's always cool to see more girls who know their stuff 'round here. Unfortunately this thread is like many of the other "girls with vws" threads and has more drama than necessary. Relax, yo.

      Cheers

      Ha... It is such a beautiful car (your mkII of course!)

      Yes, and thanks! I completely understand your sentiment... My brother is the only other person that has driven my car since I have owned it...

      I hear ya, Mine's nothing special... just your average 20 year old econo-sport-hatch but I'm rather attached to it. My MkIV wasn't very low at all and yet the odd time I let someone else drive it, it would end up with a scrape on the valence. I can only imagine what might occur with the MkII
      I just don't want to run the risk of someone else damaging it... too many possible complications.

      Any links to more photos of yours??

      So wrong indeed! I love clean mkII's....


      No more pictures at this time... I'll post a few of when I bought it, and while I owned it but was broke (IE: in the military!) I am starting to build on it now, but have not had the motivation or time to clean it up for pictures yet...

    14. 10-19-2010 06:49 PM #154
      Well it looks good as is so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your GTI next

      Is that your bfs car or something? Or did you buy it from a guy recently? I can't remember his SN but I have TONS of photos of that car which I saved on my old computer years ago and the owner was a guy.... maybe it's just a look-alike? Awesome car regardless.

      My BF used to drive a MkIV, but he's never had a MkII. I wouldn't take credit for a car that belongs to a boyrfriend either haha. I bought the car almost completely stock 3 years ago from a non-Vortex'er so it must just be a look-a-like. I'd be curious to see some pics of this twin though! Your MkI is sick... any specs on the engine work?

      Here's what the car looked like when I purchased it:



      All stock, original 16V, not even an aftermarket CD player. Only the ugly Ronal R8s which I removed rather quickly lol.

      That 1.8T Rabbit is awesome. I'm not really feeling the colour matched bumpers, but no big deal. The TH Lines look perfect on it Stock 1.8T or no?

      Wow then props! Ya I'll try to find photos of it, just can't remember his screen name. J-something... it's been years haha

      The Rabbit is technically the bfs, but I have hours into this car, hence auto crossing it Not putting in the work for nothing! Lol

      Specs:
      9a 2L 16v, port matched head to intake
      MegaSquirt
      Custom short runner w/ mustang 70mm TB, custom fuel rail
      Ford Racing 30# injectors
      2y Peloquin equipped 020, .75 5th gear
      DTS Shocks
      Scriocco 16v rear bar, no front bar
      Front and Rear Upper Stress Bars
      Lower Front Eurosport 4pt bar
      Delrin Offset (caster) Control Arm Bushings
      PMW Ball Joint Spacers (1.5″) and Tie Rod Flip kit
      Upgraded to Rabbit GTI spindles and brakes
      ATE Rotors and PBR Metal Master Pads (front/street)
      ATE Rotors and Carbotech pads (front/race)
      Brembo Rotors and PBR Metal Master Pads (rear/all time)
      Dual Willwood Proportioning Valves for rear brake bias adjustment
      And paint by Akrett

      That Jetta I bought not running, $700 bucks! Simply swapped out the blown head for a rebuilt one, did the seals, etc. Lowered it on Tokikos with HOR springs and sold it for $2k! The Red GTI was my pride and joy. Peppiest 8v ever. I do 90% of the work on my cars. Brendon hops in when I don't have the strength to lift something! haha I help out with the TraksClothing racecar, and I'm currently building my own conference road race car as well However, atm, I'm driving my big lifted Jeep and a snowmobile!

      Oh, here's one photo I had saved of his car aka your twin: Jazzman, that's his name. Little different wheels now that I look at it but almost the same!

      Awesome. Just awesome. I love to hear of built N/A 16Vs. There's something so cool about that.

      Thanks for the props I try to do as much work on my GTI as I can. I have more time to focus on it now that the MkIV is sold and it's my only build (I've got an '08 Volvo S40 T5 AWD 6MT on KW V1s and awaiting wheels that I daily the rest of the time and a Toyota FJ to mess around with). I've just got to commit some money to buying a donor car with a 1.8T so I can do a mild turbo build and stuff it in the GTI for a little more "go"

      Best of luck building the road race car! Sounds like a cool project. Any planned motor specs for it?

      and yeah, if you have some pics of my car's twin post 'em up! I've only seen one other set of these wheels but they were 1pc version. I'd love to see some pics of other sets

      EDIT: Jazzman's car is awwwwesome. One of the big inspirations for me getting a MkII. His wheels are actually OZ Turbos, though. Amazing car for sure.

      Because of class rules, we have to keep it pretty close to stock. We decided to go with a 1.8 16v and have a lower wieght allowance rather than the 2.0 16v. So we're sacrificing a small amount of power for a big amount of wieght reduction. This way the car can be competetive Kinda funny though, since the two of us will be racing in the same car, we have to ad weights on the weekends that I am racing to keep to the rules. lol! I don't recall exactly off the top of my head but we can't use a standalone EFI. We have to keep the stock CIS in there. HOWEVER, we can use the megasquirt ignition

      Yeah, there's sooo many class restrictions lol. Ah well, sounds like a blast

      The TH lines were on the car when it came to me. I couldn't tell you how much they were, they're like 8 or so years old.

      Stock 1.8t! Anything more and it wouldn't get traction in any gears!

      Nothing wrong with the Impreza! I love my baby! We just refer to it as the POS cause it's really not. It's been a great car so far, I am really impressed with it being my first Japanese car. It just needs an exhaust. Can't wait to use it this winter!
